kept the f.b.i. team waiting for more than five weeks -- five weeks when they were finally granted access. four months later, the administration still has not discussed the serious between the groups behind the benghazi attack and the leaders of the attack on the u.s. embassies in cairo, tunis the same week of september 11. four months later, following the pickering report on state department failures leading up to the attack, not a single state department employee has been fired and held responsible for their role in denying adequate security for the consulate in benghazi. four months later, despite secretary clinton's september 21 declaration, quote, which said, what happened was a terrorist attack, we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans, end of quote. this administration seems to have not only rested but to have moved on, and apparently hopes that the congress and the american people will too. and today, just today, "the new york times" is reporting, quote, several ejips members of a squad of militant that --

clinton said today, the fbi is still working on the investigation. director mueller was in libya and tunisia recently. i get disappointed when people give half of the story. the guy has been released. as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveillance within tunisia and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch there were phone calls today that they would have been fired. do you agree with that? >> there were a lot of missteps here. we do know that you had said that there was a whisper of questioning susan rice and secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions on why talking points were changed, we know for sure the u.s. intelligence report came out and said extremists that led the attack had al qaed

damon, on the scene in benghazi three days after the terror attack, long before the fbi got there. that is an amazing fact, still stands out in my mind, arwa, thank you very much. as hillary clinton ends her tenure of the secretary of state. the insider reveals the moment that changed her relationship with president obama. an extraordinary look at secretary clinton's world. that is ahead. >>> it has been something of a good-bye tour for hillary clinton this week, testifying before congress, appearing at the president's inauguration. she is leaving the obama administration in just a few days. and the job that has transformed her image. for this extraordinary report, cnn's kate baldwin was allowed inside hillary clinton's world. >> this is the second home of one of the world's most iconic women. and we have been granted rare access as the country's top diplomat ends an unexpected four-year journey, working for the man with whom she once traded blows. bitter rivals, yet? >> i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> reporter: just as hillary clinton showed her support for
's still subject of the fbi investigation. >> john: as we just heard senator paul called secretary clinton's actions inexcusable and said she did not read her cables. >> any requests, any of the cables having to do with security did not come to my attention. 1.43 million cables come through the state department. they're all addressed to me. >> cenk: does that make sense to you? is that fair? >> sure, i've heard political hyperbole that suggests that the tragic death of four americans in benghazi rivals in some way to 9/11 in terms of its impact forgetting about afghanistan. 20,000 soldiers were dead. iraq where 4,000 soldiers died in service the country. i think it's ridiculous. i was an assistant secretary of state, and the secretary paid me and others of my colleagues to sort through information that came through our respective channels and report to her issues of significance and particularly issues that couldn't be resolveed at a lower level. i mean, obviously as the accountability review board indicated there were mistakes made. there were misjudgments made, and under estimations of t
monitoring by the tunisian government. there are other suspects that the f.b.i. are both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with director muller, which was just a few days ago. he went to libya. he went to tunisia. heblet that the investigation is proceeding. i know that the f.b.i. has been up on the hill doing classified briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee. but i certainly hope that the f.b.i. is able to investigate, identify and hold responsible those who wage this attack against us. and i think that based on their work, they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> ok. my understanding is the thank you knees the person held in tunisia was released by a judge and that person has been released. so basically we don't really know at this point who did it. >> well, congressman, i confirmed with director muller who was just in tunisia meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance and forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told m
dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a
in benghazi. >> i believe that drk i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees, i assume members or staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond. and i think what the president clearly said is we will respond and we will bring those to justice. and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good example that it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decembimated and in li of the recent terrorist acts tists we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you character that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> core al
there are legitimate questions that still need to be answered. and as hillary clinton said today, the fbi is still working director mueller was in both libya and the senator just said, you know, while this guy's been released. but as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveilewithin tunisia, they're following the rule of law, and as more evidence becomes available they're fully prepared to act on him again. so i think, you know, as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happened in mali recently, what's happened in algeria over the past few days, to understand the evolving throat from al qaeda in the maghreb and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch, there were calls from some people, rand paul and others, that hillary clinton would have been fired over what happened. do you agree with that? >> i do agree with that. i think senator paul was correct in his claims today and how he addressed secretary of state clinton. there were a lot of -- there were a lot of mis
. >> pelley: did you take that seriously? >> tygart: absolutely. turned it over to the f.b.i. to investigate it, which they are doing. >> pelley: tygart's agency was also threatened. the c.e.o. of the livestrong foundation, armstrong's cancer charity, lobbied against usada before congress. members of congress and 23 california state representatives called for an investigation of the agency's practices and its taxpayer funding. and yet, you chose to go ahead? you were gambling the fate of usada itself on this one case. >> tygart: if we're unwilling to take this case and help this sport move forward, that we're here for naught. we should shut down. and if they want to shut us down for doing our job on behalf of clean athletes, and the integrity of competition, then shut us down. >> pelley: last year, when tygart made his evidence public, armstrong had the option of a hearing and confronting the witnesses, but he chose not to fight, and he was handed that lifetime ban. in last week's interview, armstrong said the ban was unfair considering that riders who testified against him were banned for o
. this is not the fbi. this is not the state department. this is me thinking that until the last attack, when they went in and stormed the plant, because it's the people said they were going to blow up the plant, and the algerians took over and did what they did, they stormed it, what i understand they executed all of the hostages. >> reporter: suzanne the family says they spoke with victor a few days before the siege had actually taken place and that victor lovelady never expressed any concern about going to work there at this natural gas facility. he said that he assured his family many times everything was safe and that he wasn't worried. all of this very difficult for the family to handle, especially his daughter, erin, who with her older -- younger brother are mourning the death of their father now. >> nothing's happened there in so long and my -- we -- my friends have been doing it for so long. it's fine there it's so safe, we have protection. he really truly felt safe there. >> reporter: suzanne, the family says that they don't know when victor lovelady's body will be brought back to the united
on 9/14 three days after the attack told the fbi there was no demonstration, this undercut the administration's false narrative that there was an anti-islam video to blame and this came two days before susan rice's statements on the sunday talk shows, also today, a leading republican said, given mrs. clinton's performance, having not reviewed these requests and these warnings that he would have fired her. here is rand paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility, i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time, and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, did you not read the cables from ambassador stephens, i would have relieved you of your post. >> one thing to listen for at house foreign affairs, megyn, is the parsing of the language, what we heard from mrs. clinton al-qaeda core may be decimated, the traditional al-qaeda leadership with bin laden's death, but in fact, concedes that the taste or flavor of al-qaeda, al-qaeda 2.0 what we'
evidence yet to charge him. fbi director mueller was in libya last week, talking to the libyans about the ongoing investigation. it's very frustrating to the families and to many who watch this, these investigations, these international ones, are complicated and they do take time. but believe me, wolf, the bad guys in the region watch this. and the longer it goes without anybody being brought to justice, it's an indication to them that they have freedom of action, if you will, to target western facilities and westerners, and you see things like the attack on the algerian oil facility. >> so, fran, i want to ask you, when you were watching this testimony from secretary clinton, this very lengthy testimony, hitting on so many topics, what was your big impression? what was your big takeaway from what you heard from her today? >> you know, i put myself, kate, in the position of the families who lost, you know, ambassador stevens' family and the other families. and i think, more than anything, i was frustrated. you know, they were asking -- the members of congress were asking secretary cli
've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their
has hampered the fbi's investigation success here is a matter of justice and it's also a matter of signaling to the militants that there is no place for them to hide if the attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member for his opening remarks. >> thank you mr. chairman for holding this important hearing. i hope that we can use this for an opportunity to seriously examine the steps that we need to take to end their reach peak of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in the gotcha politics and in gauging the to achieving this bipartisan goal. madam secretary, as the new ranking member on the foreign affairs committee, what me say on behalf of the democratic members on this committee, we would like to welcome you back to the committee in regard that you are feeling better. this would likely be a final appearance before our committee and i want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve the
brought to justice there? >> well i believe, well, i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume members of staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director just a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads, and putting together cases. they with have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting but you think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond. and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated. and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that as al
know, the fbi is still on the case. all of the reforms suggested by the arb are important. plus this high-threat index that the state department is implementing. john kerry must make the security of our personnel abroad a very high priority. but let's understand, these people, these magnificent heroes who work in our state department sign up to put their lives on the line, if necessary, to project diplomacy and hopefully win hearts and minds around the world. and that is important. we can't just hunker down and live in bunkers in the united states of america. >> senator rand paul who has expressed interest in running for president in 2016 said hillary clinton would have been fired over the benghazi attack if he were in charge. take a look. >> i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable.
to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has been totally turned upside down. >> kelly came to him to the interview to try to clear her name. she said she was terrified last summer when her husband, scott, read a mysterious e-mail on her joint account. >> she didn't know that these anonymous e-mails were from paula broadwell or even a woman. they terrified her. they were, in her view, full of threats and blackmail. >> reporter: kelly describes her relation
